Just a thought...

The whole premise of 'Intelligent Design' is that 'complexity implies a creator'.

In other words, things are so complex that they couldn't possibly have come into being 'by accident'. Life is complex, so therefore it had to be designed by someone.

However, if complexity requires a creator... and considering that God would be the most powerful and complex being ever...wouldn't that mean that someone had to create God? If God didn't have a creator, doesn't that disprove the whole idea?

It's typical when you think about it. It's classic religious thinking. Believe what you want to believe, ignore everything that proves you wrong...and when a major contradiction in your logic is pointed out, say "That's where the faith comes in" or ignore it completely.

Believe what you want to believe, just don't try to pass off your belief as Science. Intelligent Design isn't science. It's religious doctrine prancing around in a stolen lab coat.

Oh, and 'faith' is believing in something when there's no evidence to support your belief, such as belief in God's not believing in something when you've actually been proven wrong.

That's called 'idiocy'.

I don't think I'm an idiot to believe in God and the thought process is so huge to think of where he came from, my brain can't handle it. I'll ask when I get there though.

I don't think believing in God makes you an idiot. The idiocy only comes in when you get the people who insist the world is only 3000 years old because that's what it says in the bible.

My overall feeling on the whole Intelligent design debate is feel free to teach it in Religious Education...but ID doesn't belong within a mile of a science class
